Jeff's "Goodness Gracious Sakes Alive" Sauce Recipe

Discussion in 'Sauces, Rubs & Marinades' started by soccerhawg, Jul 16, 2009.

  1. OK, I just ordered it and downloaded it but I have a question for those of you that have made it. When making the sauce, do you bring all of the ingredients to a boil while mixing before simmering or just heat it up to a good temperature?

    I've searched all over and I can't find this particular answer.

    Thanks.

    Personally I bring it to just starting to boil then turn it back down not really sure if its right or not but it works for us

    Most recipes of this nature will say to bring the liquid JUST to the point of boiling and then bring it back down to a low simmer...my $.02
     
  4. Thanks guys. This is what I thought but I wanted to be sure.

    I'm a newbie so I'm gonna be doing a lot of reading and probably a lot of questions. Hopefully, one day, I'll be able to contribute more.

    Thats what I do, I simmer it for about a 1/2 hour to let all the flavours develop, then bottle it.

    ADDITIONAL QUESTION:

    How long would this sauce last once made and refrigerated?

    I put it in a glass BBQ sauce container and it's been maybe a week since...

    I usually make about 5 gallons of BBQ sauce once a year. 4 of those gallons go to different relatives. My Gallon lasts the summer and most of the winter. I am talking about my recipe not Jeff's but I'm sure his will last that long as well properly chilled in the fridge. I take out the large container and pour as much as I think I'll need into a smaller container for each smoke or grill session. I put the large container right back in the fridge without delay so it never even thinks about getting warm.

    I make different fruit sauces during the season and jar them properly in small jars so that once opened they are used up within a week.

    I keep mine in an empty cleaned out Wish Bone Salad Dressing container. Still using the batch I made this past summer with no ill effects. Great stuff!

    I bring mine to a boil then let simmer for 1/2 hour or so. The one thing I noticed about this sauce is it's like a fine wine, It gets better with age (lol). I will make it at least a few days in advance if not a week. I have a bottle in the fridge that I made a couple of weeks ago that tastes really good right now.
